NT mine safety works out for tender

NT mine safety works out for tender

A public tender has been issued for small mining environmental and public safety works covering 17 historical mine workings in the Tennant Creek area in the Northern Territory.

The works will improve the safety of 39 open mine workings including shafts, open stopes and adits using a combination of backfilling, mesh covers, chain link fences and signage.

Northern Territory Resources Minister Ken Vowles said the sites had been prioritised due to their proximity to town and evidence of people going to these locations.
